Waterford Cap Classique 2017

Created by utilising Méthode Champenoise - the classic method of making champagne - our vintage Cap Classique is made from Chardonnay planted on the Estate and defined by secondary characteristics from extended ageing on its lees and in the bottle. The wine has a distinctive mineral backbone, classic brioche yeasty notes and fine bubble structure.
